Exactly - Keith took over when Nicky couldn't stay on.

Preston definitely did some early 70's Stones Tours - but according to Wikipedia Nicky was the live keyboardist from 1971 to early 1973, including the "notorious 1972 North American Tour." There's an amazing boot out there from Texas June 24-25, 1972 that I think I got off DIME.

Let me know if you can't find it - I'm not sure I saved the FLACs but I could get you an mp3 copy. I also have a couple of really good ones from the 73 Europe tour that I believe feature Billy preston.

Thanks! I was on a Rolling Stones kick last year and pulled down a bunch of shows. Let me see if I already have it first.
